    have you thought of making it more like a pot luck? letting others bring certain dishes would help cut the costs and allow others to take a part in Thanksgiving, other than eatting of course.

    Can you have them do potluck? You cook the turkey, dressing & gravy, supply the silverware (or plastic ware), dishes (get the big chinet plates) and drinks (do iced tea, coffee, milk or kool-aide) and have everyone else bring what is left.
    If no-one steps up to the plate, assign them things to bring. Write what people will bring so you won't have dupes and everything is covered. If someone normally runs late assign them dessert <grin>.
    My family has 5 kids - we are all grown. When we get together for Thanksgiving, that is what we do. Plus we have an adult table & a kids table (since we don't have room at a table for 15 people - that is how many when we all get together).

    Sometimes we do this in our family too. Whoever is hosting makes the
    meat then the (already prepared) veggies, salads, pickle plate,
    veggies and dip, rolls, desserts are brought by guests. Mashed
    potatoes, turnip, and squash can be put into crokpots to keep warm.
    Cooked veggies like carrots can be quickly re-heated in the microwave
    right before supper. Whoever is hosting also supplies drinks like pop
    and coffee. If people want alcohol they bring it themselves.
